Tip Reasoning

  • The hosts have found the back of the net in every home Ligue 1 match this season.
  • Saint-Etienne are conceding an average of 2.11 goals per away game this campaign.
  • Lyon themselves are conceding over a goal per game at home this season.

Perfect opportunity for Lyon

Hosts Lyon will be disappointed by the midtable position that they currently occupy in the league table, however, this match provides an opportunity for them to put back-to-back wins together after they defeated Troyes 1-0 last time out. These two sides are huge rivals but Lyon are huge favourites against a Saint-Etienne outfit have tasted victory just twice so far this campaign.

The visitors sit slap-bang bottom of the league standings, which is hardly surprising considering they’ve been defeated in 60% of their league games so far this season. Confidence will be extremely low and even more so after their last out. It seemed as though Saint-Etienne were about to pick up their first point in nearly two months before Lens scored a 95th-minute winner. Manager Pascal Dubraz has lost his last seven personal meetings with Lyon and it would take something special for his side to claim something here.

Hosts to be too strong for the bottom side of Ligue 1

There are a number of absentees for both sides but the hosts should simply be too strong here against a poor Saint-Etienne outfit. We think that Lyon will secure victory in the Derby Rhône-Alpes and that there will be at least three goals in the game. Lyon rarely fail to score but they have been suspect at the back, as such, goals should be likely.
